September Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to our September challenge.  It's hard to believe that it's September already.  Where has this year gone?

With less than 4 months until Christmas it's time to start thinking about some serious card making if you haven't already done so.  

Every year I have great plans to start my cards early and every year I find myself struggling come Dec 1st.  Luckily this blog has kept me somewhat on track this year and I do have a few cards ready to go.

This month the theme of our challenge is "Christmas Presents"

A nice simple one this month, just include a present on your project.

As an optional extra keeping with the present theme add a ribbon and/or bow to your card. 

The prize this month is donated by Platypus Creek Stamping & Craft and is a set of Sunshine Designs cling mount stamps.

Here are some samples from the DT: 


I will be back on the 3rd to announce the winner and top 3 from our August challenge.
